Worldmaking images of disaster: the ‘art’ of speaking of/for the disenfranchised

Recently, the massive human migrations from war-ridden and natural disaster-plagued regions of the world has flooded my Facebook account. I know I am not the only one participating in this digital philanthropic revolution unwillingly, as a passive site-seer: a subject apprehending the social world as a detached landscape, a collection of sites. By using the concept of ‘site’ I wish to stress the domination of the sensible by seamless geometry, hence a violence of detachment as abstraction from…See More

Scholarly-gender orders: mega-events as lightning rods in global cultural contexts

For almost a decade now, I have been following the development of literature on mega-events, with extra focus on the Olympic Games (and more recently, the World Cup). My main observation has hardly changed over the years: within the critical tradition of the social sciences, scholarly discourse highlights the merits and problems mega-events generate in urban milieux (e.g. tourist and otherwise beneficial policies for host cities, protests for human rights violations, housing improvement or…See More

The death of community and the rise of individualised tourist mobilities

Read more on Interdisciplinary Journeys http://rtzanelliinterdisciplinary.blogspot.co.uk/2014/04/the-death-of-community-and-rise-of.htmlI am intrigued by the well-developed Wikipedia entry (25 April 2014) on ‘individualism’. Its exploration of the concept’s journey in philosophical, psychosocial and political terms would appeal…See More

"Rodanthi, this is a beautiful piece. Were I still teaching subjects that included fortunetelling, I would definitely include it among my assignments. Two questions if I may: (1) Could you tell us a bit more about the techné of reading coffee…"

Serendipitous fortune telling

I never thought that my childhood’s magic would be stolen by a coffee machine. Like many other modern people with little time to waste and much accumulated taste for conspicuous consumption of technology, I tend to start my day with latte or cappuccino produced out of cachet-measured portions of milk and coffee. Nostalgia or decades of cultivated taste do nevertheless dictate the occasional return to cups of Turkish coffee (corrected to ‘Greek’ or even ‘Cypriot coffee’ by the ardent culinary…See More

Public and private ghosts

Public and private ghostsA while ago I was intimated by someone that you should not play with ghosts in some countries. Pop fiction teaches that there are ghosts creeping out of houses, possessing people with no warning and articulating collective fears with no remorse. A friend of mine who is a seasoned South Asian traveller pointed that Thai ghost stories have now made it to the cyberspace, acquiring personal…See More
